Ryan O'Shea is a Software Engineer from Dalry, Scotland who has lived and worked in Berlin, Germany since 2003.

He loves to build, learn and fix things. Software engineering gives him daily satisfaction, since there is always something new to make, or bugs to fix.

Before software engineering, Ryan had a 12 year career in edtech with Wall Street English and Pearson as a manager, trainer and teacher.

He also has a education and training in architectural design from the University of Strathcylde in Glasgow.

Fun fact: if he's running a workshop with a warm-up where the introduction needs a "fun fact", he usually says something about: Sandor CleganePete Doherty, or Max Zander.
